    for halloween- THE WEREWOLF SONG

    Sign in to disable this ad
    it's a werewolf song.... called "THE PAYMENT".
    inspired by the classic horror movie "the wolfman"


    http://********.com/songs.aspx?SongI...ArtistID=30211

    OR

    http://tinyurl.com/2jsvst

    it's loosely based on the original wolfman movie, the one where larry talbot gets bitten by the werewolf, and he see's the pentagram in his hand, and he knows he's fucked, so he goes to the old gypsy woman to get fixed, and she basically tells him to kill himself...... what a bum deal...

    anyway, these 2 brothers have been partying all night, drunk as a skunk, one of them wanders out into the moor, and meets his maker.

    the other brother wants revenge, but figures he'd better get some ammunition, so he goes to see the gypsy-witch, to get some aconite (wolfsbane) and a spell here and a prayer there, and figures he's set, so he goes out to the moor too, to get his revenge.

    but that's not what he gets......

    “The Payment”
    Written by Robert F. Gilliland
    c1999 Robert F. Gilliland



    Nightime, on the moor
    drank up all the mead
    mist is in the air
    full moon, did the deed.

    never saw the evil...
    that poor ole son of a bitch
    felt the claws that gripped his throat
    yeah, he was dead without a twitch.

    'it's your brother down on the moor,
    with his head down at his feet!'

    drink the aconite, tonight
    toast the witches curse
    pray to whoever you believe in
    to pass over you the worst

    it's your brother on the moor,
    with his head down at his feet
    and the debt has not been paid in full
    will you, your maker, meet?

    run into the moor
    and see the evil eye
    upon you cast a glance,
    and the payment, it is nigh.

    happy halloween!
    LOL
    those vox....
    well, you reach down, grab your nuts, squeeze real hard, and hope you can keep pitch!


    honestly, it's just getting the levels right, choosing the right mic for your voice (in this case, it was a AT4033 for this lead vocal, usually tho it's a ADK Hamburg).... i put a touch of compression on it going in (dbx mini-6 comp) just to even out the peaks and valleys.... and try to back off the mic when i'm hitting it real hard. basically, work the mic.

    ok, an idea for the middle section:

    at one point, i was considering doing this 'growling' thing, in the middle section....

    i was thinking, to close-mic the amp, doing total slack string drops with the trem bar, and slightly hammering on/pull off on the slack bass string, to approximate a 'growl'....you know, cut up the track, into bits and pieces, that sounds like intermittant growling....

    then, copy that to several other tracks, slightly offset each one, and then blend them as one wide track...

    then, actually growl (or low speak) onto another track, but mix it super low, so it's barely there, and have it do the same exact thing as whatever the growl guitar track ends up....

    so the idea is, for the middle section:

    the remaining brother is wandering thru the moor, on his way to the gypsy witch's cabin....
    it's dark, spooky, and obviously, the werewolf is watching him from a distance..... growling under it's breath....




    som'pin like that?!

    Hey man great job. I'm not really feeling the song, but that's just personal taste. The production - as always - is freaking top-notch. Everything sounds just right, clean, and mixed well. Kick ass job overall.
